Pubic Hair Transplant
Hypotrichosis or atrichosis is a heterogeneous group of diseases with the majority being idiopathic (Fig. 1) [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]. These diseases, common in Mongolian women but rare in Caucasian women, often cause the patient psychological problems such as low self-esteem and consequent social withdrawal . Surgical treatment may help the patient in recovering their mental health [7, 8]. Before the surgical procedure, the patient’s expectations and the transplant hairline design should be identified.
